Our Guides

We are locals, we live right next to the Tongariro. We fish and guide the rivers in the central north island all year long. You can't beat our local experience and knowledge of the fishing in this area.

As locals, we are deeply invested in preserving the natural beauty and ecology of our rivers. By choosing us, you support a guide service that is committed to sustainable and responsible fishing practices, ensuring that future generations can also enjoy these pristine waters.

Multi-Day Trip

We highly recommend to book a number of days. This allows you time to adjust to our unique style of fly fishing and New Zealand's wily trout. It also allows more travel time to give you better chances of success on each given day dependant on weather conditions.

Ultimately, our goal is to provide you with the best possible opportunity to land the fish of your dreams. With multiple days, you'll have more time to explore different locations, find the hotspots, and make the most of your fishing adventure.

1 Hour Free Casting Tuition

If you purchase any rod over $500, you will receive a FREE 1 hour casting tuition from one of our experienced fishing guides.
